The clue's in the publication date (1943, copyright renewed 1970). It is still in copyright in the USA, so you will not be able to download it.

DAISY format books are provided for people who have "print disabilities," including blindness, impaired vision, dyslexia. Only they are permitted to download copyrighted books which have been produced in the DAISY format.

so I guess I cant get at it,

why do people with disabilities get automatic rights to view something that is copyrighted? defeats the whole purpose of the copyright

That was a rather ungracious reply.

You can borrow it from a library.

Please help.

I apologize I came across as ungrateful that was not my intent, I genuinely feel confused as to why the copyright law can be circumvented in such a manner, but that is getting off topic

nevertheless I wish I could get it at my library, but the book seems rather illusive, and the library I have access too doesn't appear to have an inter-library program with a library that does have the book

again thank you for the prompt replies

I understand. :) It's quite a joke, really, as the print-on-demand wallahs don't seem to give a tuppenny damn about copyright.

You might even (shock, horror) buy a second-hand copy - from $1.39 +P&P from abebooks.com, or a bit more pricey if you are in the UK.
